The Clarks constitute one of the most unusual war working families in the nation.
This picture was taken in 1943 during World War II, a few weeks before the eldest son John E.Clark met his death in a traffic mishap returning home after performing his nightly duties as a mechanic in the Yard garage on the Graveyard Shift.
Despite the sadness and loss of a son and a brother the remaining five Clarks carried on their jobs at the Shipyard.
It was a sad,sad day for the Clark family in 1943...
